Before taking classes at SPC, your College Placement Test scores determine if you are at a college level in
math. You may be exempt from this test if you have qualifying SAT or ACT
scores or a college transcript.
If you score below a certain level, you’ll need to take a developmental
math class. You take these
classes within your first two semesters at SPC since they prepare you
for your college math courses.
While you do not receive college credit for developmental math
you do receive credit
towards full- or part-time student status for purposes of financial aid. Keep
in mind that financial aid only pays up to 30 credits of remedial classes. Also, the grades you receive in developmental classes are now included in the GPA
calculation for determining Satisfactory Academic
Progress for keeping financial aid.
If you only missed certain math skills on the College Placement Test and scored just shy of taking MAT 1033, our Elementary Algebra: My Bridge to Success (MAT 0990) class can put you on the right path. These self-paced classes cover the skills you need to master, not ones you already know. You earn from 1 to 3 credits for this class rather than the 4 you would take in other developmental classes.
From algebra to statistics, SPC’s math courses prepare you for your related four-year university program. Just check
the statewide Common Prerequisites Manual for the classes you will need for your chosen institution's program. Our courses also help you meet the general education requirements
for mathematics for your A.A. degree or A.S. degree. Your options include:
